5:03 am
>> do you want the respond at all about whether any of that was true? >> there's no response. >> kris: camille cosby may face even tougher questions in a scheduled deposition this morning. seven women are suing cosby for defamation and their lawyer wants the hear from camille, who worked for her husband as a business manager for years. private conversations between married couples are protected by law, but business conversations are not. cosby's legal team has argued those conversations should be confidential and also that camille doesn't have any claims. a judge, however, disagrees. this is... there is no way to predict what she does have to answer and what she doesn't because everything that she is going to talk about is both marital and business. >> kris: cosby's legal troubles are mounting. there is one criminal case in pennsylvania with several charges of sexual abuse and 12 alleged victims have filed lawsuits.

5:14 am
it's not an easy request to grant here. we want the keep 50-degree weather through the end of february into the month of march. we'll keep a nice day today, but temperatures more realistic for the time of year. good morning, everyone. 36 in boston. 29 in bedford. 37 in norwood. 39 in plymouth. take a look at the wind. it's out of the north. that northerly component to the wind, that is going to drag down some of the cooler air that we have across northern new england. otherwise a quiet day. we do have quite a bit of sunshine in store as any rain and cloud cover that we have early this morning down to far southeastern mass continues to slide off shore. so it was a close graze with a storm, weak storm at that just to the south of us. it won't be a graze is what we're coming in here over the next couple day, mid-week. two separate systems we're tracking. one right now down through the deep south. this will provide us with a little light mix by tomorrow night. however, the other, the secondary storm that's going to
5:15 am
east coast here, which will be actually tracking inland. i wouldn't say it's really off the coast, it will work up the eastern seaboard but deeper inland that. will provide us with some rain and a soaking rain at that. that's wednesday into thursday. take a look at the weather across the country today. and there's no big storms, but what we're watching is for energy to dive out of the rockies and head down to the deep south. that's that second wave of low pressure that's going to develop. so the first one that moves through late tomorrow evening, tomorrow night, brings in a little bit of snow, sleet and freezing rain. not that much of it. maybe a coating to an inch in some spots. that should be about the most. and then we watch this area of low pressure coverage pass up through ohio valley, and this direction of low pressure system too far to the west, the north air. so it's a cold and rainy day on wednesday with some icy conditions north and west of 495. that's through the first half of the day. by the time we get into
5:16 am
the warm front surges through much of new england. and we transition over to rain. a gusty wind and temperatures surge on thursday in the 50s, close to 60 degrees. but those do come in with a strong wind at time, which could gust close to 50mph. so we'll have to keep an eye on that. generally speaking i expect about 1 to 2 inches of rain wednesday into thursday from this storm system. so something to keep an eye on. and there are some of those wind gusts close to 50 by thursday morning. 38 to 44 this afternoon. we'll call it seasonably cool. tonight mainly clear. it's a colder overnight. 17 to 25. so back to seasonal levels. we'll have those downpours around thursday morning, but by thursday afternoon, we tart the dry things out friday, saturday and sunday. right now looking mainly dry. and a little cool over the weekend. >> sarah: thanks, chris. right now the death toll is at least 18 after a powerful cyclone hits fiji over the weekend. more aid is expected to arrive soon to help the people recover
5:17 am
more than 6,000 people were staying in emergency shelters after their homes were destroyed. the storm packed winds of 177mph with gusts up to 202 making it the strongest recorded storm in the southern hemisphere. the government declared a 3-day state of emergency with schools ordered to close. fiji's prime minister says police and military were brought in to help with rescue operations and clean-up. now government workers are expected to head back to work and the international airport has reopened. >> christa: let's go to the race for the white house this morning. a new emerson college poll shows half of republican voters here in massachusetts support donald trump. marco rubio trailing in second with 16%. that's followed by john kasich with 13%. ted cruz and ben carson round out the top five on that. and on the democratic side, this is a dead heat here in the commonwealth. bernie sanders and hillary clinton tied with 46% and the
5:18 am
to the south carolina primary. that's coming up saturday. as for the republicans, they have just one day left before voters in nevada head to the polls. so for the latest on this and more on a key endorsement this morning, here's's kris anderson in the control room. kris? >> kris: christa, marco rubio edged out ted cruz in the south carolina primary on saturday night. now he's picking up a celebrity endorsement from a boston native. dorchester native donnie wahlberg throwing his support behind marco rubio in the race for the white house, saying this is the first time he'll be voting republican. >> every single thing about him says that he's more prepared than anyone else in the field by a mile. the other candidates, they hear marco coming. they do not want to face marco rubio one on one. >> kris: meantime, a crud of supporters cheered on g.o.p. front-runner donald trump in atlanta after he swept south carolina, banking all the state's 50 delegates. >> we won with everything. tall people, short people, fat people, skinny people, just won.
5:19 am
majority of trump's supporters decided on him months ago, meaning his collection of controversial comments just didn't matter. for the democrats... >> some may have doubted us, but we never doubted each other. >> kris: hillary clinton riding a wave of momentum, notching a critical win in nevada. her competitor, bernie sanders, the loss is a big blow. sanders courted black voters in south carolina one day after they delivered clinton's victory 76-22%. the vermont senator, however, has the edge when it comes to latinos and younger voters. >> we will do well when young people, when working-class people come out. >> kris: as we mentioned earlier, bernie sanders and hillary clinton are tied in the latest poll in massachusetts. sanders will hold a rally at umass-amherst tonight. live in the control room, kris anderson, 7news "today in new england." >> sarah: up next on 7news, panda watch is over. pablo sandoval is the big topic of conversation. the picture that has some
